God is Love!

Sometimes We justify our dislike for others by saying things like ” but they’re sport-stars (they play for the opposite team etc)” or “they’re celebrities, I don’t know them personally so…” The fact is that when we start to justify our displeasure for others, we are beginning to loose sight of the Celestial love of Christ, that we should all be aiming to have in our hearts at all times. 

The Son does what He sees the Father do

This is a famous scripture in Brighamite Mormonism within the Latter Day Saint movement. I was always taught growing up that this referred to the of God the Father once being a human man. Jesus some how saw the Father live His mortal life, and was doing the same. This never fully made sense to me, as I was also taught that Jesus was created as a spirit baby after the Father’s mortality, and for a number of other reasons. Speaking to a friend this week I was enlightened to a new way of understanding this scripture and in turn all scriptures.
